The Colorado Department of Transportation will repair short segments of Interstate 70 Nov. 8-10, requiring lane closures near Idaho Springs.
One lane of eastbound or westbound I-70 will be closed at various locations from 6 a.m. until approximately 5 p.m. for asphalt patching and bridge expansion joint repairs. Work is scheduled for eastbound I-70 during morning hours and on westbound I-70 in the afternoons.
A major paving and bridge improvement project is scheduled to begin along this segment of I-70 in spring 2011.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
